Selected Test Results

What works

  • Starting lightroom.exe from within the full "wine" path
    • My Desktop Links to lightroom.exe attempts do not seem to work
  • Catalog Creation (YES!)
  • Opening Existing Catalogs (tested with a win64 created .lrcat)
  • Reopen existing catalogs on launch
  • Library
    • Tooltips and Layout (no Photo Previews)
    • Folders List

What does not

  • Installer
    • The Installer Fails, but it actually still installs everything to the Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 2.3\ path.
    • I think it might just be failing on registry insertion or the shortcut creation at the end of the installation process.
  • Menu Bar is black text on black background
    • Everything is still clickable
  • Library
    • Photo Previews
    • Scrollbar to browse Library
    • Navigator Preview
  • Develop (can't see photos)
  • Slideshow (just makes the GUI twitch vertically)


What was not tested

  • Printing
  • Writing MetaData
  • "Developing" a Photo (since I can't see them) 
  • Print
  • Web

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

I think that Lightroom Library and Develop will work, but I probably have to turn off Compiz (next test session) and use a different (or REAL) set of GDI DLLs... probably from the Lightroom 2.3 folder itself. So hopefully I'll be able to update this to Bronze soon.
